Nintendo isn't exactly known for its generous savings when it comes to digital sales, but a cursory glance at this year's Christmas offers looks pretty good. There are more than a few decent discounts and, notably, it includes a surprisingly broad selection of Switch titles too.

As is always the caveat, you won't find any Nintendo first-party games here, and you'll almost certainly be able to find the larger titles for much cheaper in physical form.

Over on Switch, the superb Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle is reduced from £49.99 to £33.32, Puyo Puyo Tetris is £24.49 down from £34.99, Namco Museum is almost 50 per cent off at £14.99, One Piece: Unlimited World Red - Deluxe Edition is £35.75 down from £54.74. and Lego City Undercover is £29.99 instead of £49.99.

In terms of smaller indie games, however, there are far richer picking on Switch. There are discounts on Inti Creates' incredible retro shooters for instance: Mighty Gunvolt Burst is £6.29 from £8.99, Azure Striker Gunvolt: Striker Pack is £25.19 down from £31.49, and Blaster Master Zero is £6.29 instead of £8.99.

You can also get a fiver off SteamWorld Dig 2, Shantae: half-Genie Hero, and The Mummy Demastered. You'll also find savings on the likes of Rocket league, Overcooked: Special Edition, Kingdom: New Lands, and Has-Been Heroes.
